STRUCTURAL HONEY COMB CARBON-CORE FORMALLY NIDA-CORE
Carbon-Core doesn't just look good on the lab charts. It stands up to the tests of the real world.
The wonderful thing about laboratories is that the results can be controlled by highly skilled
lab technicians but out on the water, bumps and grinds are accidental. Building with
Carbon-Core assures you that your boat is built with material ready to handle all kinds of
stresses. A core material with unique properties, Carbon-Core Structural Honeycomb combines
strength and resilience as well as excellent structure born sound dampening.
The mechanical properties of
Carbon-Core Honeycomb are controlled by the following specifications:
1) Physical properties of the thermoplastic.
2) Cell diameter.
3) Wall gauge (thickness of the cell wall).
4) Core thickness; and
5) Facings applied to the core.
Can be ordered in 2ft x 4ft sheets, and thicknesses
